Spanish/Mexican Legacy of Latinos in Pueblo County: Teaching a Community’s history through the creation of a mural

Charlene Garcia Simms, Pueblo City-County Library District

In 2008 PCCLD’s Special Collections Department received a grant from the Colorado Humanities for a scholar to write a book on the history of Latinos in Pueblo County. After the book was written, fund-raising was held to paint a mural based on the book. When the money was obtained a committee selected an artist through the bidding process. Successful programming is now planned around this book and mural.
